The video for the first single from John’s upcoming ‘Songs’ album is out! What’s so bad about “Happy”?
Filmed at Willie Nelson’s Heartbreaker Banquet during this year’s SXSW, the video had its premiere on the Texas Monthly website.
it’s hard not to be happy if you’re a 25-year-old songwriter and you’re playing a set, and filming a video, at Willie’s ranch. Though, to hear Fullbright tell it, the performance was the second best part of the time he spent out there. “It was fun to play the set,” Fullbright says, “but it was more fun to play dominoes on his domino table. Rumor is he plays $100 games—we mostly just drank $100 in beer.”
‘Songs’ will be available nationwide in the U.S. on May 27, and in the U.K. on June 3.
